Default "Real Life" Bass recordings

Thinking about Tom Danley's Fireworks recording:

FYI: Tom Danley's no compression fireworks recording.........
http://www.audioasylum.com/forums/hu...es/110920.html

I was wondering if anybody out there has other uncompressed recordings like that which they'd be willing to contribute to the community:

-- Thunderstorms
-- Locomotives (Diesel or Steam)
-- Foghorns
-- Explosions / Demolition

Or any other real-world stuff that might have a decent amount of low bass content.

Anyone??

That's the recording I referenced in my first post. I also just picked up that FreeSound site from AVSForum the other day. But some of the stuff on that site seems heavily manipulated. Maybe I just haven't found the right samples yet.

I've often fancied attempting a full dynamic range recording of a big diesel loco passing close by at speed - that is an impressive sound, with turbos whistling and the engines (front and rear) thundering as they pass!

Not yet figured out a way of doing it, as the equipment I have available isn't exactly portable....

Mobile Fidelity had a CD of steam trains (MFCD 812) there are some pretty amazing cuts. You'll need to look in the used section since it's been out of print for a longtime.

I did a few diesel locos a couple of years ago onto DAT. (Would you believe I was just listening to them yesterday!) I used a couple of diy Panasonic mics straight into the line ins on the dat deck. Eventually, I got a couple of good takes (the mics were distorting just a little) but I am going to try again as soon as I make the Linkwitz-mod mics. Definitely low bass there
